Pig Something Others Would Kill For Even in the Future the Story Begins with Once Upon a TimeOnce Upon a Time,there was an avid reader let s call her K who thought she was very clever but she couldn t bewrong.You see,she d heard about a futuristic version of Cinderella in which Cinder is a cyborg mechanic that everyone seemed to love but she refused to read it,because she was skeptical and a little prejudiced.One day she read the first page but when she came to the part where Cinder takes off her foot she said Ok I tried but it s not for me,end of story and she continued her life.Until she decided to give it another shot,and then the skies opened and the stars above made her see the truth.That she was aOh my stars,she really was an idiot.Because there can be only one reaction towards a book that narrates a classic tale that takes place in the future after the Forth World War,when androids are a part of daily life and a plague kills thousands of people and the Earth is threatened by the cunning and inhumanly beautiful Queen of the Moon who has mind controlling powersSoon, the whole world would be searching for her Linh Cinder.A deformed cyborg with a missing foot.A Lunar with a stolen identity.A mechanic with no one to run to, nowhere to go.But they will be looking for a ghostK was mesmerized by Cinder.Even though it was a fairytale retelling,there were twists and turns in the story she could not predict.As she was reading next to the fireplace,eating chocolate and drinking chocolate flavored cappuccino,she forgot about her responsibilities and instead she grew wings and she flied to the East.She visited labs and sick people while they were sleeping,she laughed with Iko s witty retorts,she heard Evil Queen Levana scheming,she smelled the fear towards the Lunars and their unholy abilities,she saw spacecrafts take off,she swooned over a prince who was not ready to rule and give up his freedom but deep down he knew he would sacrifice even himself for the sake of his people and finally,she landed on a basement,hiding in a corner,watching a stained with grease mechanic named Cinder working and dreaming that one day her life would be hers,that she would be considered a human and not an emotionless machineDo your kind even know what love is Can you feel anything at all, or is it just programmedK loved the multiple POVs because they gave her the chance to witness both Cinder s life and the politics of the Empire.She was aggravated by the social injustice,she was hurt by some characters malice and hatred,she felt giddy when Kai tried to flirt with Cinder and frustrated with all the secrets and the hidden agendas.Even though she loved the romantic element,she was actually happy it wasn t overwhelming and many other themes were explored,like Cinder s journey to finally accept herself,Levana s reign and plots,Kai s struggles regarding his new role,the part androids and cyborgs played in the society and the attempts to find a cure.In the end,K couldn t help but admit that Marissa Meyer isthan capable of enchanting the reader,even in a technology dominated world.There are two reasons she didn t give Cinder 5 stars though.First,she found Cinder s behaviour towards Kai extremely infuriating because how can you keep saying no to a sweet prince that practically begs you to go the ball with him If she just stopped hiding the truth and acting like a child on a whim things would be so different And second,K had a gut feeling that the next books would be even better so she decided to save the fifth star for them If you re one of the few people who haven t read Cinder yet,don t hesitate to try it.It s different,unique and extremely enjoyable P.S I know it may be a little hard to see through the lines not,but K is me.Shocking,isn t it Why WHY DIDN T I READ THIS BOOK SOONER It was so AWESOME MY EMOTIONS Let me go ahead and get this out of the way I loved this book Why in the world did I procrastinate with reading it I ve had Cinder sitting on my Kindle for a few months now and I continued to put it off over and over again What a HUGE mistake I even had the nerve to go into my local bookstore twice, pick Cinder up, and put it right back down But all that doesn t really matter now because I ve remedied the problem and absolutely fallen in love with this wonderful story.When I first heard of Cinder before it s release, it was gaining quite a bit of buzz known for the retelling of Cinderella Marissa Meyer, my hat s off to you because a cyborg Cinderella in New Beijing, China Badass But then shortly before I read it, another blogger informed me that not only is it a Cinderella retelling, but also had Sailor Moon elements OMG someone had answered my prayers I don t think you can understand my excitement for that.Sailor Moon was my all time favorite TV show and manga as a child Reading Cinder reminded me of a simpler time before responsibilities, when the biggest thing I had to worry about was setting up the VCR yes, a throwback every day because at 4pm, right before Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon would come on If I were to miss one episode, I would cry my little eyes out because I just had to know what happened next to Serena I have seen every episode including the fifth season that didn t air in America I ve even seen the live action series in all Japanese And for those that watch subtitled Japanese shows, you know that there comes a time in your marathon watching where you stop reading the subtitles and start thinking Japanese in your sleep Yes, I am super fangirling and not ashamed one bit So I think it goes without saying that the reasons for me loving Cinder so much, aside from being blasted by a rainbow of awesome with its creative premise, is that it has a lot to do with sentimental memories I tell you this so you can understand one big thing I wasn t sure about Cinder at first As soon as the book started I noticed on every obvious downfall Predictability Seriously, the plot twist ran up to me and sucker punched me in the face at only 10% in This concerned me, but it quickly became a non issue as I continued to read Why Because the story was interesting It was engaging It was just plain old fun And I haven t had this much fun reading a book in a while.The plot was brilliantly done Cinder is a mechanic, under appreciated by her mother and one of her step sisters The other step sister adores her As a cyborg she doesn t have the same rights as a normal person and her step mother goes out of her way to remind Cinder this whenever she can One day Prince Kai swoon requests her services to fix his android And in true fairy tale fashion he begins to fall for her not knowing she is a cyborg But this isn t just a love story Oh no The world has been suffering from a deadly disease that kills in a matter of days and it starts to become painfully obvious that Earth s only hope for a cure depends on an alliance with the evil Lunar Queen And as you may have guessed it, she has plans for Earth Dun, dun, duuuunnnnnn I loved all the characters in Cinder, especially the heroine Cinder was independent, feisty, and relatable She didn t always make the right decision, but this is a heroine that learns from her mistakes And Tuxedo Mask Prince Kai I loved him Ah, the memories The romance was so sweet At first Cinder is wary of the Prince s advances because she is cyborg and doesn t want him to find out, but she can t help but develop feelings for him along the way Basically what I m saying here is that there s no insta love And you know how much I hate insta love Oh, and that ending Marissa Meyer, how could you do that to my little heart I need to know what happens now You took two of my favorite stories and twisted them into this big ball of badass awesomeness and now I m expected to wait until next year for book two And just look at the character line up for the next books in the series Scarlet , Cress and Winter Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Snow White I am so there Just so we are clear, I m not above stalking I will have the next book and I will have it soonAn ARC was provided by the publisher via NetGalley Thank you More reviews at Cuddlebuggery Book Blog. I m sure I ll feel muchgrateful when I find a guy who thinks complex wiring in a girl is a turn onIn this, my third attempt to read Cinder, I finally made it to the end But I find myself wishing I hadn t bothered Going into this book, I thought it was fair to expect a light, probably unremarkable, but ultimately entertaining read I did not come to this book wanting my mind to be blown with science or to be taken to another world by beautiful prose, but I also did not expect it to be so painfully boring Which it was.Cinder takes a bold and fascinating premise, sketches out a basic outline of it, and then never fleshes it out with any substance.Let s look at the wonders we have here A part cyborg protagonist, a loose Cinderella retelling in a future alternate universe, a setting in New Beijing, and a potential war with a kingdom of Lunar people a race who live on the moon This sounds like a recipe for a fantastic science fiction novel, and yet we get very little info beyond what I ve provided here.Who are these Lunar people What about their history How did they come to be on the moon How disappointing it was that we never found out ANYTHING about them beyond the fact that they have an evil ruler Queen Levana.And this setting in a future alternate world In New Beijing, even Do we ever get an exciting look into its culture Any beautiful or ugly visuals Any insight into its history, customs anything Nope.And even if I forgive that, if I say that maybe all that goodness is being saved for later series installments, I simply cannot forgive the lack of personality in our principle characters Cinder and Prince Kai are empty, self sacrificing heroes with little to no hopes, fears, desires and thoughts of their own Adri is the classic evil stepmother Iko was the not so funny sidekick.I m also not sure I understand why part cyborg people are considered second class citizens when they re basically regular humans who ve had parts added to save them But let s imagine I suspend that disbelief for a second why did Meyer waste this perfect opportunity for Cinder to consider what it means to be human For example, how much of a person can be replaced before they stop being a person and start being a machine Are there really any differences between humans and machines beyond the materials they re made from So many fascinating questions not being asked.Though really, I could have forgiven many things if only the plot had been compelling, the conflicts engaging, and the characters vaguely interesting I honestly had to force myself through.Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr Youtube wow wow WOW.I went into this book not expecting to like it I m not sure why, but this book completely surprised me
